Dodgers Players Send a Message to Fans Amid Baseball Shut Down

Thursday marks a full 7 days without baseball for most fans. As things continue to change, and the uncertainty remains on when we’ll see the Dodgers again, several players sent a message to fans through the official LAD Twitter account.

Yes, Clayton Kershaw, David Price, Dave Roberts, and Andrew Friedman are among the faces urging fans to stay strong, safe, and wash their hands.

Of course, the message is clear — it’s up to all of us to be smart and considerate of others and practice social distancing to the best of our abilities. At best, players will return to Camelback Ranch sometime in May and a shortened spring training 2.0 will lead to Dodger baseball once again possibly by June.

In the interim, organizational members will be thankfully taken care of by the ballclub as MLB announced all 30 teams would be stepping up to assist ballpark employees. Additionally, the Dodgers are among the known teams continuing to provide daily allowances to their minor leaguers.

As a last note, once baseball does come back, the expectation is that we can expect a shortened season. However many games the new schedule will be made up of remains to be seen.

Understood, there are those that are, “asymptomatic, (a condition producing or showing no symptoms), but I would argue the percentage of ballpark visitors being asymptomatic is in the range of winning the lottery.. That, and the additional use of a, “N-95 mask or other mask of equal success, is enough buffer-of-public-safety to allow fans to attend a baseball game.. They could even add a Disneyland fashioned monitor stressing the necessity of keeping the mask installed while in the ballpark… I’ll concede, having a major league baseball game without fans in terrifying at best,, But this is the only hope we have… Let’s play ball..
